for wreckless spending in the largest tax hike in american history. >> and michelle, as sue indicated moment ago, we will hear from john bainener a few minutes about the road ahead. but source near the talks told me that likelihood is that both chambers of congress will leave for the weekend. that will give more space for the speaker and president, perhaps if they choose, to negotiate and members would have the opportunity, if they come up with a product, to pass it next week. >> maybe next week. but there is a growing body out of washington that thinks nothing happens until after january 3rd, after boehner, he hopes, is re-elected as speaker of the house. does mean we don't get anything until possibly the 4th? >> there is a chance. members could come back on the 26th or 27th. have a deal and pass it in both chambers. but it is also possible, as you just subjected, that we go over the cliff. we have the first couple of days of the year tax rates having risen, spending cuts having taken effect at least in a limited way and members would be so chastened by the reaction that then they would act. th

, credible. pore like incredible if you ask my next guests who are livid. michelle, what happened? >>guest: well, there is a reason why for some long the republicans are nicknamed the stupid party and the democrats are the evil party. there have been so many times the narrative that has been repeated over and over again where the republicans capitulate and rollover. what voters who did vote for house republicans to maintain their majority need to ask, and ask very loudly, what part of the mandate you did get this past november said rollover? or said give up? or said surrender? screw the idea that a bad deal is better than no deal. at least with no deal we will finally get a government that is forked to live in its means. that is what the republican party has to stand for. why bother? why have a reason party if they don't stand for these things. >>neil: you seem upset, michelle. charles, i do understand elections have consequences and you can make an argument the president ran on the notion i have to hike taxes and i want to hike taxes on the upper income. and he won. you can make an argume
